SUO78 When Friends Are Together
The Stampin’ Up! Only Challenges theme for the SUO78 Challengeis Ribbons and Bows and I decided to incorporate the CCMC265 Create with Connieand Mary Sketch Challenge :-) I truly hope that you will have a chance to stop by to visit SUO-Only Challenges to check out all of the other Design Team creations and play along with us :-)
I love to use SU! Satin Ribbon and Seam Binding for bows but decided to create a handmade Paper Bow for this challenge, and again, since I love to re-size some of the images, used My Digital Studio (although you could modify and use the traditional stamps as well :-)).
To create this card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) print the wheat stamp from the Truly Grateful brush stamp set, the leaves using the Magnificent Maple Leaf stamp brush set (re-sizing for the three sizes) and sentiment image from the Friendly Words stamp brush set.
Position on the 8.5 x 11 page and print onto Very Vanilla cardstock (remember to leave room for the Framelits™ and Punches). Color the wheat image using Stampin’ Write markers- Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Sahara Sand and color the leaves using Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie.
Carefully cut out the leaves by hand (“fussy cut”) and use the XL Oval Punch for the sentiment (also punch out two pieces using the XL Oval Punch from Chocolate Chip cardstock to create a frame behind the sentiment).
Use the Big Shot™ with the Apothecary Accents Framelit™ to cut out the wheat image and also cut a frame from Chocolate Chip cardstock to layer behind the focal image. (by hand, cut the Chocolate Chip layer in half horizontally and layer behind the upper and lower portions of the frame).
Cut the strips for the sketch from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (DSP) and layer onto Chocolate Chip cardstock. Adhere to the background layer of DSP per the sketch and mount onto Chocolate Chip card base.
Create the Paper Bow from a piece of the DSP using the Large Oval Punch for the two loops – gently fold in half and adhere with a Glue Dot, add both loops to a small strip of DSP, attach the two banner ties and add an Antique Brad for the center.
Mount the wheat focal image, leaves and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, adding the Paper Bow and Pearls to finish off the card.
